What a great opportunity to learn a lost art. The students will learn beginning tatting skills using a shuttle and thread, to include the primary double stitch, making picots, closing the tatting ring and joining a new thread. The projects include a tatted edging that can be used as an embellishing lace to be sewn on pillow cases, garments, table linens, baby clothes and used in mixed media. The Instructor will show the techniques of winding a tatting shuttle bobbin. There will be handouts for future tatting projects and step-by-step instructions. This class will be great for the students who enjoy fiber arts projects.
